Hundred Buck A Box Tissue Paper Is Nothing To Sneeze At

At 100,000 yen (about $100) per box, 12-layered ceremonial kimono tissue from Japan's Daishowashikosangyo Co., Ltd. is not only nothing to sneeze at, it's nothing to sneeze ON. In fact, don't even look at it – just set the box in the center of the executive board room table and hope nobody dares grab a single one of the 288 luxuriously colorful sheets.

Want A Sofa That Doubles As A Tent?

Most of us had the desire to carve a little private space out of our homes when we were kids, be it as a fort out of sofa cushions, a tent out of a folding table, or a reading nook in a closet. The design team of Álvaro Goula and Pablo Figuera has created the Orwell, a combination sofa, bed, and "cabin" to give you a greater sense of privacy right in your living room.

Hendo: World's First Hoverboard (No Jokes This Time)

Remember the HUVr? It was supposed to be the first hoverboard (like the one in Back To The Future), but it turned out to be a prank, and Tony Hawk helped dupe us with his appearance in HUVr's video. Well, Tony just made an appearance in another hoverboard video, but this time it's no joke.

Want To Wear A Handy Tool For Small Measurements?

One of the hallmarks of great design is a clever marriage of form and function. This Measure Ring is a blend of a great piece of jewelry with a tailored look and a way to make small measurements. The face of the ring is an inch across and the cut away pieces and sides are the fractions of an inch. With this ring you can measure things easily on the run without having to pull out a tape measure or ruler.

Turn Your Treadmill Into A Workspace With SurfShelf

Recently, I've been profiling products like the TrekDesk and FitDesk, which incorporate a workspace into a piece of fitness equipment. This is a great concept--working fitness into a sedentary job. The SurfShelf allows you to do this, as well, just on a smaller, less expensive scale.

Meet Vladimir Putin, Russia's Premier Car Tester & Promoter
